PRECONFERENCE – Be the Exception. . .7 Steps to Transformation (Approved for BMS Credit)

Annie highlights living outside of the traps of labels, characterizations, and job titles. Getting on the path to uncovering and expressing your authentic self is what makes your life’s journey rich. Annie dives into the “7 ways of being” (honest, gentle, flexible, healthy, courageous, open and authentic) necessary to transform your life and live your true passion and potential. Learn the value of how “being” is often more important than “doing”. Become aware of how you could be just another “expert” in the world or you could “Be the Exception”.

Be Honest – Know your truth and how honoring it changes everything.
Be Open – Who can you mentor; who could mentor you?
Be Healthy – What is true self-care and why does making time for it matter?
Be Flexible – Are you open to, do you choose and do you chase change?
Be Gentle – How to keep your strengths in perspective.
Be Courageous – Taking risks, setting goals and going for it!
Be Authentic  – Be the best one and only YOU. Learn how comparisons don’t serve you.
